These Are a Few of My Favorite Things {My List-House Edition}

Morning Friends! 

Today I am linking up with Elise, Jen, April and Zelle for a fun Christmas Linkup.  For the next two Tuesdays I will be linking up with these girls for the 2nd annual These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things Holiday Linkup Party. 

If you want to join in, feel free to grab the button at the bottom of the page and link back with the party.  I want to see your favorites!

This week I am sharing My favorite things for Christmas 2014.  Since our home should be finished by the end of January (fingers crossed) I am in house décor mode.  I know it may be months until I have the house decorated just how I want it, but I know these things below will only add to the décor I already have.

Favorite Things

one // I have been on the lookout for a small trinket tray to either put on my bedside table or on a shelf in my closet to house my everyday jewelry.  I love the gold etching and it is a great statement piece. 

two //  I have been eyeing this scroll monogrammed door knocker for well over two months.  I love that it is different from your basic knocker and the fact that you can add the monogram for free of charge is a deal!  It is also on sale for $10.00 off right now.

three // My husband had a beautiful wood burning fireplace built in our home.  I honestly don't like the look of your wood just laying around, but I want it to be accessible when it is needed.  I think I could handle the "décor" of this log holder on the hearth for all seasons.

four // I love the look of an open basket sitting at your side table full of blankets.  It is a great catch all and can house all of my blankets in an arm reach away.

five // What a fun way to display my house number.  This would be great to put right beside the front step garden.  The scroll work is beautiful and I love the iron work.  Free monogramming on this right now and it is on sale for $20 off!

six //  How fun is this Funky Hen?  I love the drawing of this little guy and it would be a great addition to any hallway, kitchen, or bathroom. 

seven // I love this piece from the Cream and Country collection.  This hint of blue with the cream is my kind of style.  This is such a favorite of mine and I believe that it will be a timeless piece. 

eight // This pottery barn pillow is wonderful.  It is in their Thanksgiving collection, but I would love it year around.  It is simple enough to put in any room but I could always turn it to the solid side when I wanted a different look.

If you enjoy this link up be sure to link back with the girls for the next two Tuesdays.

  5. Big fan of the jewelry tray. I don't wear much jewelry, but the tray is so pretty it makes me want to wear jewelry more often.

  7. I hope to have a fireplace in my house (whenever I move out of my parents), and that firewood "holder" is seriously too cute. It would be perfect, to make the fire convenient and still keep your house looking cute.

    I use blankets year round (seriously) and that basket is the cutest way to have them handy. You have such great ideas...maybe you should decorate my house for me. :)

  10. Hi Sydney! I'm stopping by from the linkup! I wasn't able to reply to your comment on my post because your a no reply blogger! Just wanted to tell you thanks for stopping by! :)

    I love all the items on your list! I can relate with the log stacker thing because I hate when wood is laying around! I wish there was a way to keep it less messy too! :)

    1. Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. Now, do you know how I would fix that? I've done a little searching and I'm not sure where to change that.
